Prime Minister Menachem Begin
to reshuffle his coalition govern-

Finance Minister Yigal Hurwitz
threatened to resign over the
issue of higher pay for teachers.
Hurwitz said that if the recom-
mended pay hikes are adopted
they would trigger similar
demands from other professional
groups, leading to the collapse of
his efforts to restrain inflation.

Administration and President-

at the latter's invitation, their
first meeting in some lime.
Details ol their talk were not
disclosed but aides of Peres and
Begin said Peres' forthcoming
visit to the U.S. was not dis-

Koch Says:
West Bank Settlements
Needed For Israel's Security
Edward Koch of New York last
week ended his nine-day visit to
Israel, which lollowed a week in
Egypt, with amended views
about Israeli settlements on the
West Bank.
I come here with muted
emotions on the issue. I wel-
comed the chance to see the
situation myself The Chinese
have a saying: One picture is
worth a thousand words. I say
that seeing for yourself is worth
a thousand pictures.'' he told a
press conference before preparing
to return home.
"I am now convinced that the
present thrust of Israel's policy is
right, that a careful strategy of
settlements on the West Bank is
necessary for Israel's future
security,'' he said.
Koch said he agreed that it
would be impossible for Israel to
hand back high areas on the West
Bank from which Arabs have in
the past, and might again in the
future if war were to break out,
commanded regions in which 60
percent of Israel's population
The New York mayor said he
thought the world had not been
made sufficiently aware of the
price Israel was ready to pay for
peace. "One of the problems is
that Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat is a very personable and
articulate person who makes a
great impression. But Prime
Minister Begin is a righteous
prophet in the Biblical sense, and
historically nobody has ever liked
a prophet look at Jeremiah,'*
Koch said. "Begin knows he is
right but does not put it across so
well," he said.

Every Jew lives with the
memory of the death camps. You
don't ever, in your secret heart,

when you remember that 2
million Jewish children were shot
and gassed by it, especially not
when Jewish children still are
being murdered.
What does this re-emergence of
anti-Semitism mean for us non-
Jews? Is it not our problem? Do
we just turn it off and push it out
of our minds? That's what most
of the non-Jews in the world did

\Monal UJA Chairman, Herschel BUimberg, and Director of

Sometimes I'm asked, usually
by anti-Semites, if I am Jewish.
Nope, but I would be proud to be
a Jew. Sometimes I'm asked why

don't like all Jews. I haven't
bumped into any group of which
I can say I like all of its members,
but I feel a special bond for
Jewish people that is about as
close to a mystical experience as
I've ever had. I'm not even
motivated, as some Christians
are, by a biblical imperative.
Maybe it's because to me the
Jew represents the soul of
humanity. The more familiar you
become with Jewish culture and
history the more striking it is
how much these people have
striven, in the face of inhuman
adversity, to realize the human
ideals of compassion, reason,
intelligence, reverence and
tolerance. Like mankind itself,
they represent both strength and
That's the intellectual reason, I
guess, but there is a gut reason,
too, and that is that I will not
forgive the murder of those 2
million children. When I
remember, and I shall never
forget, those macabre scenes of
children dying in their mothers'
arms, I weep with rage.
The Israelis have a phrase they
live by. It is, "Never again."
They mean never again will a Jew
die unresisting and unavenged.
We non-Jews should adopt the
same motto. Never again shall we
turn our backs while the beast
attempts to devour a whole
people. Never again shall we
allows Jews or any other group of
people to be isolated,
dehumanized and brutalized.
You see, we have it in our
power to stop anti-Semitism in
its tracks just as non-Jews had it
in their power to do it in the
1930s. All we have to do is open
our arms and embrace our Jewish
friends. Only when they are
isolated are they vulnerable. So
all we have to do is embrace them
and announce to the neo-Nazis,
the Klansmen, the Arabs, the
Soviets and anybody else: They
are not alone; we are one people.
I can't speak for anybody else,
but I made that commitment a
long time ago to the memory of a
little Dutch girl and I make no
apologies for it. If you hate Jews,
Zionists or Israel, then hate me.

The Power Broker Returns
Is it good? Is it bad?
Henry Kissinger is back, and there is no way oi
telling. If we are to judge by his past performance,
then the answer must be that it's bad. Dr. Kissinger
is a power broker in the best Machiavellian tradition
in which power has its own morality. And it is un-
related to human affairs.
Only the most shortsighted will see Dr.
Kissinger's role in the post- Yom Kippur War era as a
positive contribution to Israel's destiny. His was an
approach that was crude, ugly, a violent bludgeoning
of facts to recreate them. He threatened Israel's
march toward victory by saying he'd let the Russians
enter the struggle if Israel continued to carry out its
military campaign in the manner prescribed by
Israel's top officers if Israel did not lay down its
He forced the Israelis, under threat of cutting
off their supplies, to feed and medicate Egypt's army
encircled and isolated in the Sinai desert. In the end,
in the name of preserving Egypt's "honor" an
absurd word for a nation that launched a sneak
attack on Yom Kippur he helped Anwar Sadat re-
write the history of the war and to cast Sadat as hero
and victor.
Kissinger's ultimate contribution was to re-
create the Middle Eastern Reaipolitik with Israel as
odd man out.
This is the man now in the Middle East about to
take up a second time the kind of power politics for
which he was a broker in those bleak days. This is the
man in the Middle East who insists that he is there in
a "private" capacity, although President-Elect
Reagan's appointee as National Security Council
Chief Richard Allen has long since announced that
Kissinger will be a foreign policy consultant to Mr.
Reagan when the new administration takes over on
Jan. 20.
This is the man who said after his meeting with
President Sadat in Mit Abul Kom on Monday that "I
did not come here with any messages" for Sadat from
Mr. Reagan, although Sadat later told newsmen that
Kissinger had carried a message to him from Mr.
It is this kind of duplicity for which the
Machiavellian is noted. It is characteristic of Henry
Kissinger's power-brokering.
A Confused Picture
In the final hours of the Carter administration,
the President has managed to get his licks in at the
United Nations. When our UN Ambassador, Donald
McHenry. last March voted with the wild Third
World power bloc to excoriate Israel for another in an
interminable list of "offenses," the President im-
mediately declared the McHenry vote as a
Now Mr. Carter has rectified the mistake. In the
matter of the latest UN attack against Israel in-
volving the ousting of the two West Bank mayors for
encouraging terrorism, the administration instructed
McHenry again to vote with the wolves. This time,
there were no announcements of a "mistake."
All of which might be dead news by now except
for the fact that Secretary General Kurt Waldheim
promptly permitted the two mayors, Fahd
Kawasame and Mohammed Milhim, to hold a hunger
strike on UN premises. But late last week he rejected
a request by three rabbis and two nuns to permit
them to stage a hunger strike of their own on behalf
of our hostages in Iran and the four Catholic women
murdered in El Salvador.
What can be a clearer picture of the United
Nations? And what can be a clearer picture of a
confused Jimmy Carter on the eve of his retirement?

Smorgasbord at Jewish Affairs1

the chilly views toward Israel

THE ANSWER, a bit slow in
coming, was to assure the French
Jewish community fourth
largest in the world that
henceforth it will be treated with
the same respect as are all other
segments of the French
population. French universities,
discard promised, will be urged
to "discuss the pluralist,

hat help foster love, not

Christians' highlight a
publication written by two
'"man Catholic scholars
ind issued by the Anti-
Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
Entitled The Oberammergau
Passionspiel 1984," it suggests
28 revisions in the text of the
West German pageant to make
its next performance in 1984. "an
example of a philo-Semitic Pas-
sion Play."
ACCORDING to Theodore
Freedman, director of ADL's
national Program Division, who
has been activa in facilitating
some of the changes in the text,
more than 300.000 Americans -
W) percent of the total attendance
witnessed the 1980 per-
formance of the spectacle. The
oldest, most influential and best
attended of all crucifixion
dramatizations, it is staged each
decade by the Oberammergau
villagers in fulfillment of a vow
made by their ancestors after the
town was spared the ravages of
I he 17th Century plague. The
nlay will be put on in 1984 to
slebratfi tta 360th anniversary.
The ADL publication, written
in English and German, also

the authors project an Oberam-
mergau dramatization that will
be "a religious, dramatic and
musical production totally free
from anti-Semitic and anti-Judaic
elements, and will show the
Jewishness of Yeshua (Jesus)
and his followers and exhibit a
sensitivity to and love for the
Judaism that was the lifelong
religion of Yeshua and all his
followers, and thereby foster
love, not hate, between Jews and
The proposals, which fall into
three major categories, call for:
Changing character names
which "unwarrantedly" impart
negative qualities to Jews;
9 Emphasizing the Jewishness
of Jesus, his family, his disciples
and his followers;
Depicting Pontius Pilate as
the "self-centered, brutal tyrant
he in fact was" instead of as a
good" foil against the "evil"
Jews as in the current portrayal.
ACCORDING to Freedman.
the recommendations build upon
improvements previously incor-
porated into the 1980 production
at ADL's suggestions, which, to
some extent, reduced the play t
potential for anti-Semitism. The
new suggestions, he said, are
designed to solve factors which
were left unresolved.
For example, he went on to
say. "The practice of giving un-
mistakably Hebrew or Old Test-
ament names to opponents of
Jesus automatically sets up in
the minds of the audience an
opposition between the Old and
the New Testaments."
He added that textual changes
underscoring the Jewishness of
Christianity's "founders" would
constitute "a giant step toward
the elimination of Christian anti-
IN THIS vein, the proposals
suggest that in the pageant Jesus
be addressed with historical
accuracy as "rabbi" and
"Yeshua" instead of "master"
and "Christ," the two appel-
ations which have been used

Waldheim Nixes Permit to
Stage Hunger Strike
United Nations Secretary
General Kurt Waldheim
has rejected a request by
three rabbis and two nuns
to permit them to stage a
hunger strike at the UN on
behalf of the American hos-
tages in Iran and four
Catholic women murdered
in El Salvador.
The request had been made in a
telegram to the Secretary
General earlier in light of the fact
that he granted permission to
Mayors Fahd Kawasme of
Hebron and Mohammed Milhim
of Halhoul to hold a hunger strike
on UN premises to protest their
expulsion by Israeli authorities.
ONE OF the rabbis. Avraham
Weiss of the Hebrew Institute of
Riverdale. told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that Waldheim's
response was hand-delivered to
him by a UN messenger while he
was attending a wedding in
Brooklyn. It was contained in a
letter signed by Clayton Tim-
brell, Assistant Secretary
General for General Services, and
stated in part:
"As you are no doubt aware,
the explusion of these mayors has
been the expressed subject of
three separate resolutions of the
Security Council which con-
sidered it imperative that the
mayors be enabled to return to
their homes and resume their
Weiss said "I categorically
reject" Waldheim's arguement.
He told the JTA that his group,
the newly formed Ad Hoc Com-
mittee of Clergy Opposed to
Terrorism, will continue to
pursue the matter vigorously
with the UN. He said it has not
been decided yet what form of
action would be taken but that it
may include further representa-
tions to secretary General's
Office and approaches to the U.S.
Mission to the UN.
RESPONDING to Timbrells
letter. Weiss pointed out. "The
American hostages have also
been the subject of numerous
resolutions in the UN. The
reaction of the Secretary General
points to the hypocrisy and
double standard of the UN."
Weiss charged that "Two
mayors who have encouraged
terrorism and are guilty of insti-
gating the murders of two Jews
from New York in the attack in
Hebron (last May) where six were
murdered have been granted
unique treatment in the UN while
expression of concern for the
American hostages has been
denied. We will not tolerate nor
accept any decision which allows
the freedom of demonstration for
the two PLO supporters while
denying the same right of
demonstration for the American
hostages and Jews murdered in
Hebron." Weiss said.
In addition to Weiss, the Ad
Hoc Committee consists of
Rabbis Kenneth Hain of Congre-
gation Orach Chaim of Man-

DADE (30*1944 6*44
BROWAPO (30SI 9?5O0*7
hattan and Reuven Grodner of
Young Israel of Scarsdale; and
the nuns. Sister Rose Thering,
professor of education at Seton
Hall University in New Jersey,
and Ann Patrick Ware, vice
president of the National Co-
alition of American Nuns.
MEANWHILE, the two
mayors, who began their hunger
strike inside the UN following the
unamimous adoption of a resolu-
tion by the Security Council
calling on Israel to permit them
to return to their homes, have
ended their action.
Their decision to do so followed
an appeal by Waldheim and U.S.
Ambassador Donald McHenry,
I who was December's Security
Council president, and several
Arab delegates. Waldheim told
the mayors that he would con-
tinue his efforts to have the
Council resolution implemented.
The mayors said they would con-
tinue their hunger strike at an
undisclosed place.

promised to ban neo-Nazi
meetings and to dissolve racist
organizations. If it does, if it
really makes a vigorous effort to
destroy the web of international
terrorism spun in Franee, the free
world shall be much in its debt.
And if. by miracle, the French
tendency in recent years to stack
the deck against French Jews
should be reversed, if French
honor achieves higher standing
than Arab oil. if de Gaulle's
sneering remark that Jews "are
an elite people, sure of itself and
domineering" fades from
memory, civil peace and mutual
respect may return to a nation in
turmoil. They might bring out

and therefore a clear under-
standing of the second pattern
that his trip has been taking. It is
arguable whether the question
can be answered at all.
President Anwar Sadat gave
Dr. Kissinger a warm three-hour
welcome at Mit Abul Kom in his
home village on Monday. Kissin-
ger carried secret messages with
him to Sadat from President
Elect Reagan. Sadat obliged with
a message of his own, also secret,
which Kissinger is to carry back
to the U.S.
THUS FAR, it is insisted that
Kissinger is visiting Egypt as a
"private citizen," albeit with the
approval of the Reagan team's
foreign advisers. But there is
clear skepticism being expressed
over the "private" nature of the
| visit.
Kissinger achieved prominence
for his shuttle dipolmacy between
Israel and Egypt following the
1973 Yom Kippur War, which
presumably led to the Camp
David accords, but these have
In Soccer Clubs
The traditional rivalry between
two leading Dutch soccer clubs,
one of them Jewish, has taken on
anti-Semitic overtones, it was
charged here by the recently
formed Foundation for Com-
bating Anti-Semitism in Holland
(STIBA). Richard Stein, the Chi-
cago-born chairman of STIBA
who lives in Rotterdam, raised
the issue in a letter to the director
fo the Feyenoord soccer club in
that city.
Feyenoord's most formidable
opponent has been the Ajax
soccer dub of Amsterdam which
is Jewish-owned and has many
Jewish supporters. Both teams
have been national champions
number of times.
STEIN POINTED out in his
letter that Feyenoord fans lately
have been singing a song, "Ajax
to the gas chambers.'' and similar
slogans. He also charged that the
Feyenoord fans are notorious for
their unruly behavior at the
Meanwhile, in an unrelated
development, the clubhouse
recently evacuated by the Ortho-
dox Bnei Akiva soccer club in
Amsterdam has been taken over
by squatters. The team moved to
other premises recently in walk-
ing distance of the homes of its
FOR HIS PART, Sadat de-
clared that "I asked him
(Kissinger) to convey certain
messages to the new ad-
former Secretary of State was in
accord with that friendship. "As
usual, our ideas have always been
identical,'' he said.
After his map meeting with
Sadat, Kissinger noted that "It
would not be appropriate to go
into the details of the analysis he
(Sadat) put forward and which I
must say. as always, I shared."
AS FOR his official or un-
official status so far as the next
Reagan administration is con-
cerned. Kissinger said, "I am
available for advice and special
assignments of limited duration.
I do not think I would be most
useful in the detailed working out
of the autonomy negotiations."
What is one to believe at this
point? You pay your money, and
you take your choice.

Black Both Barry and Newsome
spoke at the ground-breaking
ceremonies for the chancery on
Israel's Independence Dav in
May. 1979.
Israel's chancery, located on
Van Ness Street and Reno Road,
is the first in the "international
center" established by the State
Department for a dozen chan-
ceries. None other has yet been
built, although options have been
taken by various governments.
The center adjoins the University
of the District of Columbia and is
in a well-to-do residential area of
northwest Washington.
IN KEEPING with modern
security requirements, the
building is protected by brick and
metal fencing and an entrance
that permits easy access only
with the approval of a secluded
guard. The cost of the building
and its furnishings totalled $5
million overall, Evron said.
Dominating the chancery is the
atrium that involves the build-
ing's four floors and leads to a
large hall for conferences and
receptions. Works of some 50
. Israeli artists decorate the in-
terior and exterior making the
structure a showcase of Israeli
art. Works include those of
Ruben Rubin, Menasha Kadish-
man, Yigal Tomaikas, and

Planning for the building
began in 1977 during Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's first
trip to the United States, when
former Israel Ambassador
Simcha Dinitz and former White
House Chief of Protocol, Evan
Dobell, signed an agreement
leasing to Israel land in the inter-
national center.
IN LAUDING those who con-
tributed toward the planning and
construction, Evron gave special
thanks to Robert Kogod of
Washington "for his tireless
efforts on overall development."
Architect Louis Bernado was
credited with the building's
architectural design, and

News in Brief
Kollek Opposes Another Settlement
Teddy Kollek has sharply criti-
cized plans by the Israel Lands-
Authority to build a new resi-
dential settlement on the West
Bank near the Arab village of
Nabi Samwil. just beyond the
northern outskirts of Jerusalem.
He said the money required to
develop the 125-acre site for
private homes and condominiums
would be better spent improving
existing Jewish neighborhoods
inside Jerusalem.
The Mayor also warned that
whoever invests money in the
purchase of land in Nabi Samwil
will not see the color of his
money." He expressed concern
that while the new settlement
would be outside of Jerusalem's
boundaries, it would still depend
on municipal services from the
city which can hardly cope with
existing demands. Kollek also
told reporters that the new
settlement would add more
Arabs to Jerusalem's population,
meaning those who live between
the city and proposed Jewish
residential settlement.
PARIS Noam Chomsky, the
American writer who is interna-
tionally famous for his works on
linguistics, philosophy, history
and contemporary issues, has
written a preface to a book by a
French historian who claims that
the Nazi gas chambers never
existed and that the facts about
the Holocaust and the number of
victims of the Holocaust have
been grossly exaggerated.
The French writer. Robert
Flaurisson, was dismissed from
his post as professor at Lyons
University in the wake of the
scandal caused by one of his pre-
vious books on the same theme.
Mayor Kollek
Chomsky states in his preface
that he does not share Flauris-
son s views but that he favors
freedom of opinion and ex-
pression. He claims that the con-
troversy over this subject will
help reveal the real truth and the
extent of Nazi atrocities in
countries which were not sub-
jected to Nazi occupation.
United Nations Secretary-Gen-
eral Kurt Waldheim has
responded to criticism from an
international group of scholars
and world figures charging that
the UN was "in danger of be-
coming a force against peace it-
self because it has been "per-
verted" by anti-Israel forces.
Waldheim has rejected charges
assailing the UN by the Com-
mittee for UN Integrity, an
independent group. The Com-
mittee's criticism was made
public last week at an inter-
national convocation at the City
University of New York and pub-
lished as an advertisement in The
Neu York Times.
"It is disappointing to see a
group of eminent individuals lend
themselves to indiscriminate and
wholesale criticism of the UN
because of their apparent dis-
satisfaction with its position on
one particular subject." the UN
spokesman said, adding:
"We will not dignify the ad-
vertisement by a detailed
